Where has the year gone? It’s hard to believe Christmas is here again; we thought it was time to let you know our Christmas and New Year programme, here in the Lodging House Mission.

Christmas Appeal – Once again, our first preference is for a financial donation. Money given will allow us to purchase a small gift for our Service Users and ensure that each person receives a similar value present. Christmas Donation Envelopes may be obtained from Helen to enable members of the congregation to make a gift aided financial contribution.

We recognise that some people prefer to give a shoe box or other gift and we are grateful to you if that is your preference.

Dates For Your Diary

Friday 1st December the Glasgow Winter Night Shelter Initiative starts again. Please pray for the success of this project and for the street sleepers who use this and other services.

Christmas Day – We shall be opening our doors to provide a 3 course Christmas Meal and a small gift to around 100 Service Users. For many, this is the only present they will receive. We are always grateful to receive little “Extras” at this time e.g. cakes, biscuits etc.

Sunday 3rd February 2018 at 6.30.p.m. – Our Homelessness Sunday Service will be slightly later this year. Guest speaker will be the Rt. Rev Susan Brown, Moderator of the General Assembly. Please come and show your support for Glasgow’s  homeless and most vulnerable citizens.

Thank you – to everyone who purchased our Christmas Cards this year. We still have stock for sale.

Also, for your help and support during the past 12 months. We simply could not exist without you.

Everyone in the LHM wish you all every blessing throughout the Advent Season.

Yours sincerely,

Gus Smeaton
